I am thinking of purchasing a high end large flea circus. Either Walt Noon's or Sven Svenson. Does anyone know the pros and cons of either one?

Do not know much of a Walt Noon's...However I have a Sven Svenson and am extremly happy with it...

I've built one based on Walt's plans and I'm very happy with it. Both FC's have good reputations and look good which I'm sure is why you are considering them. I imagine the difference is the mechanics. Is the Svenson model operated by RF?

There are some other makers of less costly FC's which in my opinion don't look nearly as good so stick with one of these two.

The svenson is mechanical, Don't know if that is a pro or con?

The Sven although mechanical comes with all the working plans, re-stringing is simple and all repairs can be done on site.

It also has a large number of effects with it, I will reduce the number to those four or five that make up my performances when I re- order another smaller unit from them.

I own four different makes of Circus and consider Svens to be the best, easy to work, good flash and comes complete with a music CD.

Just got back from the Bristol Harbour Festival where we were booked for the second year to do 6 Flea shows over the two day run with crowds of over three hundred (So they couldn't see a thing !!) At each show.
